after newtown that really congress, the government, somebody had failed children. why can't you go to school and not get shot up by a man who's mentally ill? but i think something that's also crucially important here is there needs to be a series of measures across the spectrum for democrats and republicans to get on board with it if they think it's a measure that will end up moving things against the nra. if you can deal with mental health, you can deal with the entertainment history, deal with the gun industry, i think you can get this through. >> thanks to both of you. this is $100,000. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. ...so as you can see, geico's customer satisfaction is at 97%. mmmm tasty. and cut! very good. people are always asking me how we make these geico adverts. so we're taking you behind the scenes. this coffee cup, for
